Wedding Essentials for Marrying Abroad
Getting married always requires a lot of planning and preparation, regardless of whether your big day will be hosted in a registry office, English country manor, a French chateaux or on a Jamaican beach. Many people consider getting married abroad as perhaps an easier option; guaranteed weather, pack a dress and suit, invite whoever fancies a holiday and off you go. We’ve been chatting to flight comparison website jetcost.co.uk about some of the wedding essentials you need to remember for your destination wedding.
Do not forget the rings! Most wedding destinations will be able to provide a stand in or sell you an alternative if the worst happens, but for sentimental value’s sake, leave reminders absolutely everywhere and check a thousand times before you get on that plane. Also remember the obvious admin, identification certificates, copies of speeches – all the boring paperwork that you need to tick the boxes. Bridal jewellery is also often commonly forgotten, so if you’re planning to wear a special necklace or bracelet on your big day, make sure it’s all packed.
Everything from hangover remedies to stomach settlers. Nobody wants to feel rubbish on their wedding day, or spend the morning hunting down a pharmacy that will hopefully understand their ailment and be able to provide a remedy, so get prepared in advance. Also if you have an allergy, particularly something like hay-fever, make sure you’re prepared. These scenic destinations are often rife with pollen and insects which you might not be so familiar with, so make sure you have some tablets and insect repellant to hand to avoid any unwanted bites or snuffles.
This may seem like an obvious one, but it’s surprising just how many brides are lobster red come the wedding day after trying to catch a bit of colour in the run up. Photoshop can work wonders of course, but prevention is better than cure. Pack plenty of suncream and perhaps head out to your destination a few days before so you can adjust to the weather.
So where will you be heading for your destination wedding?
